who's life and art have been nourished and inspired by time in wild places, works to express reverence for the mystery and beauty of the places he loves. The deep silence and deep peace of wild places are at the center of Rod’s work. “In my art, I try to flow, to capture the essence and spirit of that great flowing life, of struggle and silence and peace. I try to express the spirit and essence rather than the details which often distract.” He founded Heron Dance, an art and literary publication, in early 1995.

was born in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, surrounded by lakes and forests. A “nature girl” at heart, she has always found inspiration in the humbling power of the outdoors. She studied with M. Wendy Gwirtzman in watercolor; Sari Gaby in portraiture, oils, and pastels; and Pat Tribastone in oils. Many of her works have found their way into private collections worldwide. In speaking of how nature affects her work, she has stated: “Nature helps me to become realigned with the wholeness of life…. It is my intention to share that feeling with the rest of the world through my paintings.” Her work may be seen at http://christinewaara.com.
